Description:

The agency specializes in services for women, but it doesn't turn anyone away. Approximately 25% of their clients speak Spanish exclusively, and the remainder are either bi-lingual or English-speaking. The agency provides referrals to the full range of its clients needs, including medical and psychological help, housing, case management, and food. "Local physicians call me when they have a new diagnosis of HIV," Evelyn says. "Especially if it's a woman. Since I have been living with AIDS for more than a decade, I can usually answer their questions. We try to reduce their fear and anxiety, let them know that there is help and that we'll guide them through the process." "For Spanish-speaking women to receive information and materials in their own language and to come to our office where they feel safe is really important," Evelyn says. "We have a children's room here, so they're welcome to bring their kids and other family members with them. We want their support system to have the information they need also." One of Working Wonders' newer initiatives is helping clients on disability return to work. "So many of us are living longer now, a lot of our clients want to go to school or back to work. But they have questions about their benefits," Evelyn says. "Our COO has experience helping people make this important transition. We want to empower our clients to take care of themselves and their families. We let them know they can take care of themselves, regardless of their HIV status." "People feel comfortable in accessing services here because they know I walk in their shoes," Evelyn says. "They see me as a peer who can truly understand what they're going through." "Our office is not sterile, it's homey," Evelyn says. "We've created an environment that is accepting and welcoming to women with HIV - and honors them."
